RevFest art and music festival has Crestview roots

Published: Monday, March 3, 2014 at 07:57 AM.

The festival, hosted by New Earth Army, achieved its goal of being an event that is especially attractive to local audiences, Flatau said.

"Our idea is that, even though it is in the middle of spring break, it is primarily for locals to come out and enjoy something," he said.

"That's what it is about: Doing something for the local community so they can see what we have to offer here in the area."

By keeping admission low — advance tickets are just $5, door price is $10 — area families can enjoy an entire day of regional music and visual art. Some all-day festivals charge $25 or $50 a day, Flatau said.

"If the people of the community feel they can go to an event that is not really expensive, it will draw more of your everyday person" instead of just band groupies, Flatau said.
